4 teams make the playoffs $25 buy-in
Prize pool will be $250 we can figure out how to allocate prize money once everyone is paid up. In addition to prize money this year I'll be offering up a bonus prize to the league champ that I hope to continue in years forward in the form of a league champ hoody. Whoever wins this year will let me know what size hoody they wear and I'll have have it printed with the GameTZ logo, your user name, your team name as well as our league name. This year I'm going to go into my own pocket for this and next year I was thinking we could add $2 per team to the buy in to cover it.

We've used ESPN in the past and I think our buy in the last couple years has been $25.
Damn I was unaware Vince McMahon owned fantasy baseball too!
Wrestlers hit balls instead of swinging them?
Really motha fu ckas? https://youtu.be/q2tIMEJZo8w
Fine. We can the buy in be the $5 buy in begininers special for a season to rebuild. Hammer straight up doesn't have the discipline to run a league over a year or longer. Plus his wife two times him with giant huge Purple BBC behind giant back on the low.
$5 low stakes experimental season it is.
honestly yall should just let me be the gtz fantasy baseball specialist. i'll run the league with a steady hand removed from the majority of the drama on this site and let yall talk as much crap as you want
So far it's Me, Sam, broccoli and yourself if your in. Not sure about @myrixXXX
I will play in this one too if you will allow it.
Great, when is the draft?
Not sure yet. We need 10 players before we can set a draft date. I believe as of right now we officially have 5.
@sam clever ass diss im just waiting til march to subscribe

Are you in or out?
probably out but if you get to 8-9 lemme know i might change my mind
> I'm gonna pass because I didn't realize it was ESPN
We tweet the standard rules. It's still more rigid than I'd like it to be. We have 3 DL spots, 3 bench spots, if you run it through the espn fantasy app it's really not that bad. We're doing a small buy in just to keep the league alive, would hate to lose you but that's about as hard a sell as I have in me.
@brownies8701 are you in?
What is the buy in?
$5 I'll do it. if $25 I'm out
i would be in again but buy-in need to be more then $5 just ain't worth it at $5
Slim since all you guys defected to Hammers league I don't know that we'll have the interest to fill 10 spots in. $25 league. I'd much rather do $25 but so far nobody's said they were down.
I will play for $25 if we can get enough interest in that. Where's all the people from the yahoo league we did for years? That one didn't even run last year and the year before it went to hell.
@Slim of course id rather do a $20/25 buy in like we always have. But if my choices are go for that and not be able to fill the league or do a low stakes league-- id rather keep the league going with a low stakes buy in and get back to where we were next year.
For the $25 I think it would just be you me and Sam and maybe Mclintosh. Clear_Sights is out of fantasy baseball this year, I guess he got tired of autodrafting, and coming in last. Hammer defected to start the other league. I haven't seen @thenadz post anywhere in a while, haven't heard from @Dustin so I don't think he's in, haven't heard from @Rune_Walsh in a while either. And sharif and the jaw who expressed interest last year for joining this year also have been MIA. For our usual buy in right now I think we only have 4 Spots filled. So we'd have to fill 6 more spots in the next 3 weeks. I'd love for it to come together but I'm not sure I see it happening. I wanted to play in a league even if I wasn't gonna run my league this year and I don't like the idea of not playing one bit. I'm not sure how it's gonna play out but id rather play Low Stakes then not play at all.
As of right now we have 5 people in for $25 @dustin and @Rune_Walsh. The $5 buy in will only happen if we can't fill 10 league spots for $25.

Your title is extremely misleading then. I was also thinking of joining at $5
Things are evolving and I'm not sure how it's gonna go. If we cant get the league full @$25 well still 100% do it for $5. But we've had $25 buy ins the passed 3 years and my fear is that for $5 people out of contention early will abandon their teams and the season will be lost.
so is basically everybody playing in hammers league also playing in primes? what's the point of that? just kiss and make up lets all play together like we have for 3 years now. it would be better for quality of play,
by my count there are 7 members from last years GTZ prime insanity league who want to play again:
lets do this right:
$25 buy in
same as it has been, lets find 3 new members and roll
I can ask maddawg
@Slim thanks man. I sent him an email through what was his PayPal email but I didn't check to see if he got back to me.
Boom! Brocc you're in. Last year Dustin hadn't done baseball before and I coached him up, showed him how it worked, what plays, what's worked for me over the years, by half way through the season he was damn near a pro. If you have any questions about any of the inner workings feel free to ask me anything.
> Do you have to spend money all season long- buying waiver pickups , etc?
> Or is it a wire?
Wire kid. 7 roster moves a week. 14 on two week matchups.
3 spots left.
Update: wont be able to join this year guys
With some back door diplomacy it seems the last three spots in the league will be filled by Dustin, Cook, and HAMMER. I've been told a tentative deal has been brokered to merge the leagues. Still waiting on offical word to be sure.
Let this be a lesson to our leaders that diplomacy always wins out
Jimmy Carter rolled thru
Praying for this league.
Ok boys we've got 10 now. So we'll need to discuss a draft date. We've historically done it on a Sunday night which would work for me again, let me know what you guys think. I'm thinking two weeks from now? Around 7/8pm ish.
I'll get offers out to everyone shortly and reactivate the league from last season and get invitations out by the end of the week.
I sent out offers to everyone in the league. If you sent your payment to hammer already he'll forward it to me, but accept the trade offer. There should be a record on file. Hammer will let me know who paid him already when he sends to me and I'll check received in the trade offer as if you sent it to me directly.
Payments from HAMMER, Dustin, Cook, Broccoli, Rune_Walsh and Slim received. Let's talk draft date so we can get the rest of the guys paid up too. Have an issue with my WiFi at the crib so something this week I'll find a hotspot and reactive everything on ESPN and get offical invitations sent out to everyone.
Added Slim to the list of guys paid up.
As I proposed privately, I'm in favor of drafting Sunday March 25th. The last Sunday before the season starts.
And I proposed a week or two earlier. But whatever you guys decide is fine with me.
Ok so far we've got a Sunday in March around 8pm.
Everyone weigh in with your preference
Sunday March 10th @8pm
Sunday March 17th @8pm
Sunday March 24th @8pm
> I'm cool with any option....still an auction draft or a snake draft?
Auction Always. Auction Forever. Seriously it's the best day of the year.

those are Saturdays.
March 25th are the correct dates. Just want to avoid confusion lol
25th would be good for me.
So far a few don't give a craps and a few 25ths
i work 1 9pm central every sunday would prefer saturday
I could do any weeknight
I have a commissioners conundrum. Maddawg an original league memeber got back to Slim and confirmed his desire to come back. I'm not sure what to do about this if anything.

I don't know what you can do at this point with a full league.
I won't do it because I'm not gonna start the season on a note like that but theoretically I could dismiss any one team and slip maddawg in. For instance a team that hasn't paid yet would be a lot easier ethically than a team already paid up. However I wouldn't feel good about doing that, particularly worse I think than I do about Maddawgs disclusion. He's an OG, been with us since the start. Him wanting to be in and not being in isn't kosher and doesn't sit well with me, but I'm afraid maybe hands are tied here and I can't do anything about it.

to be clear I don't expect you kick anyone out nor do I want that but if nobody pays is fair way to slip him in there but a deadline would need to be set.
